My IB coordinator is FORCING me to take a language LAL class when I should be taking a language B class. Clearly I am not capable of speaking or writing in this language at all. Do I have any rights as a student to go against this?????? (I already have English LAL they want me to take Norwegian LAL as well)

I mean you can choose not to do the IB? Your required language for IB as part of a well rounded person

Is there another language LAL the school offers that u can take? If not, then I suggest changing schools to one that does offer ur preferred language, or as @Oxib suggested, choose not to do the ib

At our school, everyone is required to do at least one language LAL. If you feel like no language LAL class fits you, as they said, why doing the IB?

you are not forced by the ib to take a language and literature. ie (im brazilian so i have to take portuguese) i take port lit HL and english lit SL. however, if it is a “rule” in your school that everyone needs to take at least one LAL then really theres nothing you can do (unless you try to say that the ib allows it etc etc but idk if they would give in)

I already have english language and literature, they’re also forcing me to take norwegian language and literature when I’m supposed to be taking norwegian B
